Both work for Separation
Under the head of " Irish Nationality," United Ireland of the
7th February, 1891, publishes the following : —
" What are we struggling for ?
" At a time like the present, when so many Irishmen appear willing
and anxious to place the destinies of their country in the keeping of
English-Irishmen, we think it our duty, as a journal which for the last
nine years has kept its place steadfastly in the front of the battle, and
held aloft the national banner, in some measure to answer this
" Is a mere Parliament the end of Ireland's aspirations ? An old
Doric temple in College Green, Dublin, filled with three or four or
five hundred gentlemen from the country come up to town to put
their heads together as how best to drain the Suck — is this the thing
for which we have striven so long and so bitterly ? Is it an assembly
with a prime minister, a mace, and a sergeant-at-arms, called together
to enquire into the possibilities of our mines, to construct our railways,
and to increase our fishing fleets, that is to satisfy the yearning and
longing of the Irish heart ? Is it even the power to order and govern
our own constabulary, to appoint our judges, and to settle our land
question that is to satisfy us for ever ? No, fellow-countrymen !
We are struggling to make Ireland a nation."

THE SAME LANGUAGE AND THE SAME MEN.
Mr. T. M. Healy M.P., at Mr. William O'Brien, M.P., at
Newry, 15th March, 1891. Killarney, 31st August, 1885.
" And if the Liberal Party should " If the olive branch that we
fail us, then we shall be free and are holding out to England now
independent to deal with them, as should meet with no better re-
we were in dealing with the sponse than the raving of the
Tories in 1886. I am satisfied cockney newspapers —
they will not fail us ; but if they
did, I would say —
" We've a hand for the grasp of "We've a hand for the grasp ol
Another to make them quake, Another to make them quake,
And they're welcome to whichsoever And they're welcome to whichsoever
It pleases them most to take." It pleases them most to take."
THE COAT STILL OFF.
Mr. Parnell, speaking at Galway, October 1st, 1880, said :—
" I wish to see the tenant-farmers prosperous ; but, large and
important as is the class of tenant-farmers, constituting as they do,
with their wives and families, the majority of the people of this
country, I would not have taken off my coat and gone to this work
if I had not known that we were laying the foundation in this
movement for the regeneration of our legislative independence.
At Ballina, April 20th, 1891, Mr. Parnell referred to the various
Land Acts which have become law, and his action in supporting the
Land Purchase Bill, continued : —
" It was for these things that I took off my coat in 1880 — (cheers)
— and it is for these things that I have got my coat off still — (loud
cheers) — and that 1 intend to keep it off — (cheers) — until we have
banished traitors and seceders from the Irish ranks — (groans for them)
— until we have secured once more a united army and a united
country, pressing on for the recovery ot Irish freedom and Irish
legislative independence. (Loud cheers)" — FreewsLti s J curnal, 21st

A NOTE FOR ME. GLADSTONE.
Mr. Thomas Sextox M- 1 *., at Cork, on 1 7th December.. 1890*
referred to Mr. Gladstone's declining to give the assurances asked for
<by Mr. Parnell, as regards his next Home Rule Scheme, and stated : —
" I may here say that unless Mr. Gladstone, of his own accord,
gives a statement of his intention satisfactory to us, it will be our
duty, a duty we shall execute in due time, to obtain assurances from
:him before any National interest is jeopardized ; to obtain assurances
from him not only upon the points included in Mr. Parnell's manifesto,
but upon every point which, in the interests of Ireland, must and
should receive attention." — Cork Herald, 18 th December, 1890.
MR. JOHN DILLON IN AMERICA.
In a speech delivered at the Metropolitan Opera House, New
Tfork, on November nth, 1890, Mr. John Dillon said: —
"The cause as claimed for the Irish people is the right to make
their own laws and name their own representatives. It is the same
fight in which your forefathers bled and fell. The acquisition of these
rights which you obtained has made this country what it is. Prior to
the Revolution your great Republic was a miserable, downtrodden
province of a Government which now oppresses us. This is the
cause which we have made bold to appeal to the sympathy of the
American people." — New Fork World, 12th November, 1890,
THE HOME RULE ROAD.
Mr. Edward Harrington, M.P., at Tralee, 1st January,
" My friends, there may be yet a long road to travel. It is a
difficult and a tiresome journey before we get Home Rule, and we
want every Irishman in that fight. (Hear, hear.) . . . Don't be
betrayed into any expressions against Mr. Gladstone or any of the
English Liberal Party. (A voice — To hell with them.) No, we don't
want to send them to hell. We will want their help, so also will they
want ours. (Loud cheers.) I say this. I believe Mr. Gladstone is
sincerely desirous to give us Home Rule, but at the same time he has
to look to the class of Home Rule he will give ; and I will say this,
speaking in the name of the young manhood of Tralee, if we don't
get the management of our own affairs free from outside control
Home Rule is not worth our taking." — Freeman's Journal, 3rd
LIES AND DECEIT FOR THE ENGLISH.
Mr. John Deasy, M.P., at Cork, 27th January, 1891 : —
"Who won the Hartlepool election? Was it the Parnellites?'
(No, No). Where was the great Crowbar O'Connor on that occasion >■'
Where was the, sycophant of the Irish party, Mr. Pierce Mahony ?
They were dancing round Mr. Parnell in Dublin or somewhere else,
those were the men who have been going round Great Britain for
3^ears, preaching doctrines that he (Mr. Deasy) and those who
were with him would not preach. He (Mr. Deasy) had never
paid on an English Platform what he would not say there that
night. He had not been saying that they all wanted to be part
and parcel of the British Empire, with the lie upon the top of Ins
tongue. He was not going to disgrace his constituents and make
himself a public liar by going over to England and uttering
falsehoods there and coming back and saying he was deceiving-
the people of England at the time." — Cork Herald, 28th January,.
